Poo trou­ble

Chat - - Health -

Q Since we moved house, my 3-year-old has been ter­ri­bly con­sti­pated.

He doesn’t poo for days and then he’ll scream in pain and the poor lad will push out a brick! Could it be the change of wa­ter? Cerys, 35 A Con­sti­pa­tion is very com­mon at this age. A change of wa­ter won’t cause it, anx­i­ety over your house move is a more likely trig­ger. re-es­tab­lish­ing his bowel pat­tern means a high­fi­bre diet, toi­let train­ing and pos­si­bly lax­a­tives. Talk to your GP or health vis­i­tor.
